SSE plc Begins Work to Establish New Substation Site, near Geiselittle

SSE plc has announced the establishment of a new substation site near Geiselittle, west of the A9 south of Thurso, Scotland. The start of work on the new Thurso South site is the latest step in the delivery of Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission's GBP1.1 billion Caithness-Moray projects which is due for completion in 2018. The new substation will allow the connection of the upgraded Dounreay-Mybster 275 kilovolt overhead line with existing and planned circuits operating at lower voltages. Once complete, it will supply power to the local distribution network and enable the efficient connection of renewable generation in the north of Caithness and the Pentland Firth. While the new access junction is established at Geiselittle, a short stretch of the A9 south of Thurso will be reduced to a single lane with temporary lights to control the flow of traffic.

SSE Receives National Grid Support Contracts

SSE will be offered a one-year contract by the National Grid to provide electricity reserve capacity totaling 750MW from its Peterhead power station in Aberdeenshire. It will also be offered one-year contracts to provide backup capacity from its small generation units at Keadby, Fiddler's Ferry and Ferrybridge sites, totaling 89MW. The contracts will be awarded by National Grid under its 2015/16 Supplemental Balancing Reserve (SBR) tender process. SBR is designed to enhance security of supply by bringing forward capacity from generation plant that would not otherwise be available to the electricity system, due to the difficult market conditions facing traditional thermal generation. The units awarded contracts will be prevented from business-as-usual participation in the electricity market, with capacity only being made available if called upon by National Grid under SBR.
